      Shaft Update

      Jeff at Transaxle has announced that due to recent interest, they will be producing a run of 20 shafts, at $395 each!!!
      He says anyone wanting one (or more) is to contact him directly at Transaxle and make a $100 deposit to reserve a shaft.
      While not explicitly saying it's a deadline, he asked to have all deposits in by the end of the month.
      Looks like production will be complete by "the end of january" , though I recommend adding a week or two to that just so you won't be disappointed by delays.

      Three for me!!!
      3 speeds are better than no speeds. I LOVE 010 AUTO TRANSMISSIONS!!

      If you need ANYTHING from China, let me know. I'm not talking about door handles. I'm talking containers of anything made there. I can cut out all the middlemen.

      This thread is awesome..

      If i get bored and achieve what I want to with my Mk1 16v, i'm thinking I might go down the manualised Auto road. Would be cool to drag race it. And a cool cruiser.


      Thanks for posting all this info, guys. It's a really good read.

      My TJ just but the dust today. Pressed down the happy pedal to over take a slow driver, then hear a "pop" and then followed by a nasty grinding sound... Coasted in neutral and towed it home...

      you people on this thread have been very boring lately...so I might as well contribute..I disassembled my audi RDE transmission and inspected everything. Luckily the transmission seems to be rebuilt fairly recently so everything is in great shap except the second gear sun shell which had some large gouges in it from the planetary gearset hitting it from a previous bearing failure. So I drove a total of 200 kms yesterday waited around in dirty shop for 2 hours waiting for the owner to get there and he found me a flawless sunshell for just 40 bucks! I ordered a new piston for the back of the transmission then I will be able to continue it assembly.

      Ps... I just bought and a B&M Pro ratchet shifter too make this thing work perfectly.

      I've been boring, but that's because it's too cold to work in my garage, lol. I put the car away running this year, so there's not much to do anyway.

      Next topic.
      LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIALS!!!!

      I spoke with Gary Peloquin a year ago about making Torsen lsd's for 010. I imagine a couple of the dedicated drag cars in our group will end up with welded dif or a spool, but let's face it, that'd be a useless, miserable experience for a street car. I've got a peloquin in my TD autocross rabbit, and it's amazing. In a hard turn, it shifts the torque over to the outside wheel, slinging the car around the corner with a great deal of authority. Another example of it's prowress: I was in a situation where one wheel was on hardpacked snow, and the other on dry. The car was a 35psi turbodiesel easily capable of dusting 24v VR6 GTI's. Anyway, under full power, the car accelerated as though it had both wheels on dry. I could hear the diff working, it makes a cool howling noise.
      Anyway, Gary seemed a little interested, but indicated the minimal interest he'd recieved thus far hadn't warranted a production run.
      Similar to how we rocked our world with a 300M input shaft group buy, I bet we could get enough confirmed buyers to convince Gary it's time to quit teasing and put out. Most of his diffs sell for around $800-850 US. Let's pretend that is ballpark for an 010 diff. How many of you dudes would be interested in grabbing one? Let's get a rough tally and I'll call him to see if he'll bite.
      ANYONE?

      If yes, please make a simple one line post, ie. "I'm Interested in an LSD" to make it easier for me to count.

      Thx! Let's handle this like we handled our shafts! hehe

      Speaking of our shafts, here's something I see all the time here in Hong Kong on the municipal garbage cans. I'm half expecting Oscar the Grouch to spring out wearing nothing but a trench coat!

      I'm working on a LSD for the 010 but I need another complete differential for testing. I just spent the last two weekends thrudging though snowy/muddy boneyards and there just doesn't seem to be any automatic A1 or A2 cars out there. I cruised Craigslist thinking there might be a trashed out roller for a couple of hundred but nothing local.

      Anyone got a spare diff sitting around?

      I'd like to get something soon so I can use it in the box with the new input shaft.

      Send me a PM if you have one and we can make arrangements.

      Ok I'm new to VW world I have 96 5sp that cant handle the hp. of a 2.0. Can I use the 010 trans with some up grades to hold it with out RVB and let it act like a normal auto trans. I have 100mm or the large axel flange. the car is the back up to the fleet when one goes down this one gets driven as a DD. The week ends have not been nice to this car

      DCor are you in the lower 48 (I hope) and where can I find or who is producing thees.

      The 010 can easily handle 115hp, but an old worn out transmission will die with any amount of HP. I wouldn't hesitate to put one on the ABA, even in a Mk3. A fellow who sold all his 010 cars long ago (rychas1) had one in his Mk3 IIRC, worked fine. I'd recommend finding one from a Mk2, there are more clutches in the drums, and the final drive is taller (for better rpms at hwy speeds). The Mk1 box is 'weaker' than the Mk2, but that's only to say it has fewer clutches in it.

      To be brutally honest, the Mk3 autos are actually quite decent...they just need more TLC than most. A properly rebuilt one would easily last a long time. Most of them die due to lack of maintenance, and abuse by teenagers.

      As for who's producing these...well, at this point it's a 'DIY' sorta thing . We all try different things, and share the info here.
